Six months after Fidel Odinga’s death, he became a father posthumously. The mother of the twins was not his wife. Fidel died in January 2015, leaving no will.

What followed was a protracted court battle that has accumulate into a major win that has secured the interest of the Odinga family  after they were allowed to control the estate of Fidel Odinga (deceased).

Fidel’s mother-Ida Odinga has been at the forefront of the legal battle against her daughter-in-law, Lwam Getachew Bekele but in the new resolution,  Raila Odinga Junior has been appointed as the administrator in Fidel’s estate. He will share this role with Lwam.

Idah argued the grant issued to Lwam was done  erroneously and that it unjustifiably locked out other interested parties from the estate of the deceased.

She accused Lwam of sidelining the twins Fidel had sired with another woman, Phoebe Akinyi.

“The proposed administrators cannot be entrusted alone to faithfully administer Fidel’s estate,” she said when the matter was still active in court.

Ida argued that Lwam deliberately failed to “include and provide or otherwise show the intention or providing for the said minors hence a red flag on her intentions.”

Ida claimed in the statement that her son’s death remains a mystery.

“That even though the death of the deceased remained a mystery and efforts were made to establish what suddenly transpired, the petitioners herein, kept off from the family,” Ida and Winnie said in a joint affidavit.

They went on; “It remains unclear why the petitioner hastily ran away and kept off the family, whereas, there have been various efforts to establish contacts.”

The estimated value of Fidel’s estate stands at Sh40 million. His mother and sister Winnie had listed 10 properties and some bank accounts they said belonged to him.

The properties include Fidel’s home at Tipuana Park, house number six in Karen, three parcels of land; two in Kisumu and one in Kajiado, 250 shares each in both Axum Investments Limited and Ambesa Investments Limited.

Going by the consent signed on February 16 2022, Fidel’s home situated on Bogani Road, Karen was given to Lwam. So was one of the lands in Kisumu and another in Kajiado.

The other parcel of land in Kisumu was given to Lwam to hold in trust for Fidel’s son.

The same will also apply to a Nissan Sunny and a KBS Range Rover, the 250 shares each in Asum and Ambesa Investments limited, monies held in two accounts at gulf African bank, Diamond trust bank, standard chartered (Kenyatta avenue branch), CFC Stanbic bank (Chiromo branch) African banking corporation (industrial area branch) and Gulf African bank, (Upper hill branch). They will all be held in trust by Lwam for the minor.
